I have the same problem over here (over a PPP link). 129ac3 and
ppp-2.3.5, but the problem has been there for some weeks now (I think
even more than two months).

I never blamed the kernel for it but my provider instead, but now that
I see that others are having the same problem, I thought I would speak
up :)

I will try finding out which kernel introduced this bug. The hard part
will be to reproduce it...
